Educational Technology (EdTech)
The standards for educational technology are designed as performance expectations for the use of digital technologies. They work compatibly, and practically, within Washington’s teaching and learning environment.
The assessments for educational technology have been integrated into the core content areas — science, math, health, English language arts, social studies and the arts. They include a checklist for K-2 teachers and offer a comprehensive inventory of free and low-cost digital resources.
Each standard is accompanied by sample illustrations of the learning by the completion of the grade band, as well as logical connections to other content areas at approximately the same grade that also have a match in cognitive demand.
Assessment activities are well guided, easy to use and come equipped with a comprehensive inventory of free and low-cost digital resources. Teachers will use these assessments to determine student progress toward Washington’s standards for educational technology.
